How to prepare a place to broadcast?

First, we’re going to describe technical aspects of giving shows because you should know tips and hacks connected with giving performances. You can’t do it anywhere and with any webcam for example because low quality means always smaller audience.

Remember that nice, tidy and comfy room/house makes that also your viewers feel better. And satisfied watchers give more tips and they are often more willing to invite you into private rooms. Even if you are the most beautiful person in the World, with dirty and dark apartment you won't earn too much:

  • make sure that area around you is tidy and clean
  • add some items that may make better atmosphere
  • improve your room or devices as often as it's possible to make quality of your shows and your audience's experiences better.

Which room is the best to perform?

First of all, a room you choose must be a comfortable environment for you and your audience. You can create a special studio for your shows, choose any of your room around your house and change the place from time to time. Always remember that various rooms have different features:

  • BEDROOM - it’s the most intimate and romantic place in your house for sure
  • KITCHEN - food is associated with pleasure. Especially boys love food and kitchen performances. And you can eat something additionally during your shows
  • BATHROOM - you can give a show having a bath, for instance. But bathroom is also challenging for you - noises from pipes, humidity, steam and you must be aware of your gadgets (and the best is to choose waterproof equipment).

Some platforms allow to give shows in public places, on other ones it’s forbidden. Make sure what is banned on the website you want to perform. Remember also that different locations offer various light - and you must be aware of that. Because you can perform only with the light you have or be more like a studio and buy additional lamps. These both ways give other effects.

How to create the right atmosphere to broadcast?

First of all, you must feel comfortable performing. You must have enough space for sure and you don’t have to have a bed. But of course many models have this furniture and give shows from it (or from sofa). But if you have other vision of your shows, it’s also a niche that may pay off.

Very important is light. You can use professional lamps or colour options, for example lamps with red or pink shades.

Colors you can use in your performing space
Neutral ones More aggressive ones
light blue
light grey

Before you start, always check if you are visible in a good way. Additionally, keep your gadgets near you. And when everything is ready, turn on music. Complete silence is uncomfortable, the more if there always any sounds around you. So it’s better to have chillout or sexy music in your background than for example neighbour’s crying childs.

What about light for your shows?

There are some basic rules of setting light. At the beginning of your broadcaster career you may not have an option to use professional lights. But you should know what is advised and what is not:

  • AVOID:
    • cold bulbs because they make skin extremely pale, almost white
    • streaming against light because it will blind your viewers
    • to dark and to bright light
    • sunlight can't be too bright and fall under bad angle
    • is advised to choose 4 warm-shade light sources. The best are LED 2700 — 3000 K
    • having 4 lamps: the first one goes under your computer, closer to you, another 3 are placed on the ceiling, 1.5 m from the camera. If you have wall lights, use them instead
    • warm light makes you look healthier and sexier.

Remember also to improve your devices when you start earning more - better quality always means bigger audience.

Offering your worn lingerie

You can sell also your used panities, bras and other gadgets. Some viewers buy them and treat like trophies. You can sell them via special sites or offer using your social media channels.

Regular shows and dedicated fans allow to earn more

Making your performances scheduled, you allow your dedicated viewers and fans to know when you give shows. It’s helping in creating bonds between you and your audience. The schedule may be shared in your profile page, for instance.

What’s more, set up a fan club if this option is allowed. This way you’ll make a closer community that supports and interacts its members each other. Remember that you must care about your fan club fans. Share with them extras because they will be paying a subscription for you.

The longer you’re online, the more you can earn

The longer you're online, the more people may view you. When you will work 8 hours a day, for sure you'll earn more than working only 2 hours a day and your experience will be bigger. More people you meet means also more potential dedicated viewers of your shows.

But it isn't everything. Various hours may be different. Being online the same time when top models give shows almost always cause that you are lower in ranks. But when you are online when they aren't in their rooms, it's a space for you and your shows. So check various hours of performing and choose the right time for you to earn as much as you can.

Is it better to give private shows or to be in public rooms?

It may be only your decision but you must know 2 things:

  • private chats mean price per minute and sometimes spying too. And this way you can earn a lot if there are viewers who want to pay for time with you
  • the same time a group of models prefer to give open shows in public room that are tip-based. Especially when they have tip-controlled toys, they are able to make more money than you in private room.

So you must decide if it’s better to give private or open shows. They vary but sometimes it’s better to have more viewers and a good tip menu than to spend time only with one viewer.

But for sure a perfect solution is a situation when you combine both these performance types (or when you check all sorts of chats available on the website you use). It will help you to choose what to do to earn the most. You can give some open shows for everybody regularly but be available also to go private on other days. A perfect combination should be scheduled by you but remember that focusing on only one type of performances isn’t good.

Each show is different and being a broadcaster you must remember that

There aren’t 2 shows that are the same. Some shows may be great and profitable, other days you can earn less. It's normal but you always must do your best to attract as many viewers as it's possible.

You can have also various moods and it also affects your shows. Because of this, try to always be in good mood when you start, especially if you perform on websites where you can be rated by viewers. Your rating is important for your level of popularity among viewers.

Don’t block too many regions when you broadcast

Blocking regions, locations or areas helps if you don’t want to be watched by people you know in real life. But don’t block too many areas - it will affect for your profits for sure.

Check options of blocking on the website you perform and wonder for a while before you do it. The truth is that you will never be sure in 100% if there isn’t anybody on your chat who knows you.

Promote yourself, it always helps

You should have your social media channels and promote yourself any way you know. The more people see you, the bigger your audience will be.

Your popularity means more money. Big porn stars or webcam models have their social media profiles and interact with their fans a lot. Do the same, be in touch with them. Answer for messages and comments, it will pay of for sure.

Make your profile on webcam platforms as great as you can

Having interesting, fully filled and colorful profile with many pics and videos makes you more interesting. Especially if some content is free to see.

Fill all information, share some details of yourself and things you offer and like. If visitors can check all basic details in your profile, they may make a decision if you are interesting for them. Good profile makes a lot of work even if you’re offline. It allows to know you better. And viewers often save interesting models to see them live when they are online.

Remember that make-up looks a little different in camera

Make-up looks different live and in camera. You should check it before you start performing.

Natural make-up may look as if you have none. To look like having make-up, you must make it a little overdoing. On TV and films people have always more cosmetics on their faces and it looks good in hard light and in cam.

First think what effect you want to have on your face and body and then just make your make-up and try it on pictures and in camera. And consider use of waterproof cosmetics - giving shows you can get tired and excited, at it may make you sweated. And wet face doesn’t keep make-up the way it should be kept.
